Mary

Mary
Acrylic on paper, 33x46cm 2014.

My first finished painting of the year! Adelaide Kane as Mary in the new TV show "Reign".
Listened mostly to Sarah McLachlan while painting this, especially Elsewhere:

I love the time and in between, the calm inside me
In the space where I can breathe
I believe there is a distance I have wandered
To touch upon the years of reaching out and reaching in
Holding out, holding in

I believe this is heaven to no one else but me
And I'll defend it as long as I can be left here to linger in silence

If I choose to, would you try to understand?

The painting is available.
